About Me

I am board certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics.

This means that I spend most of my time devoted to caring for whole families, across the age spectrum. I focus on preventive medicine, chronic disease management and coordination of care across the health system.

I’m most interested in quality improvement and improving the delivery of health care for everyone.

What I enjoy most about The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is working with colleagues in various specialties and providing care for whole families in one office.

I enjoy spending time with my two children and husband. I also like reading and spending time outdoors.
